We recognize that effective learning does not always take place exclusively in the classroom. As a school, we wish to broaden learning horizons so that students can connect the outside world to their experiences in school. Each club in school tries to provide these enrichment activities in their own way. Clubs are perhaps one of the most anticipated programmes at DRSIS.
Club Portfolio Options
1. Literary Club
The club nurtures a love for language, promotes literary interests & activities on campus and encourages students to analyze both reading and writing perspectives. Creative self-expression, articulation of ideas through wordplay and creative collaborations that hone students’ confidence make the essence of the club.
2. Visual Arts Club
The club encourages students to bring their imagination to life, by creating experiences that develop the knowledge of materials and processes as starting points for creative exploration through paint, paper and even sculpture. The club invites students to look at colours, shapes, textures and designs differently.
3. Performing Arts Club
Through the performative mediums of dance, drama and theatre, the club fuses performative elements to nurture a love for active expression in the students. Narrative dance forms, plays and performances are given original interpretations through the club. The Club is open to contemporary, classical and western performative modes and trains students to excel in the form of their choice.
4. Music Club
DRSIS nurtures students who are musically inclined through this club. Besides accommodating and cultivating a diverse range of musical tastes, the club also provides voice coaching, sessions in musical notation, opportunities to learn to play instruments and compose original scores.
5. ECO Sustainability Club
The clubs encourage students to identify, learn about and adopt sustainable practices that help conserve the environment. The club also provides a platform for students to take considered action through awareness campaigns, movements and drives that aim to sensitize the local community about the need to go green.
6. DRS Community & Humane Society
The club actively nurtures the altruistic streak in our students by encouraging them to understand and act on their responsibility towards the community at large. This involves students actively participating in, and even initiating drives and outreach programmes that focus on empowering and assisting those less privileged than themselves, honing a wide array of skills in the process.
7. Design and Technology
The club will promote learning of designing concepts through tools of technology, Photoshop, Animation, etc to understand, innovate and create design and product prototypes. The basic principles of design and technology are introduced to the students who then experiment collaboratively using models and test pages.
8. Cuisine Club
The Cuisine Club develops the love of cooking and culinary innovation in our students. Students are encouraged to experiment with flameless cooking including salads, entrees and desserts from cuisines around the world, developing a nuanced understanding of flavour, texture and technique in cooking.
9. Interact Club
The Interact Club is the youth wing of the Rotary Club and has associated with our school to give our residential students a platform to develop their leadership skills and foster a sense of social responsibility. Through the club, our students reach out to the underprivileged and strive to make a tangible difference in their lives.
10. MUN Club
The Model United Nations Club gives students hands-on experiences of simulating the proceedings of the UNO, through discussion and deliberation. Students learn the Rules of Procedure in a practical way and engage with issues of global concern. Mock MUNs also prepare them to tackle MUNs at the school level.
11. TedEd Club
DRS International School is home to the official TED-ED Club which hosts sessions for students who are passionate about making a change and sharing great ideas with the world.
